From our regular book review column.
Not all of us have been intrigued by philosophy. Plato,
Descartes, Kant—those are names representing ideas we may
feel we should know more about, but, what can you say? We are
busy clinicians, and keeping up with the latest developments in
our field is already more than we can accomplish. And yet, we
all probably confronted, at one point or another in our medical
school education and beyond, fundamental philosophical questions,
such as the definition of health, the meaning of suffering,
or the ephemeral, subjective nature of pain.
